The Bentley Theater
A Department of Theater Project

The Department of Theater invites you to meet the Class of 2025! First-Year students arrive on the Dartmouth stage in a showcase performance to introduce themselves to each other and to the Upper Valley.



FIRST-YEARS! Want to get involved?

The First-Year Project is a theatrical event created and devised entirely by first-year students. Material might include scenes, monologues, songs, dances, improvisations and/ or original material written by the First-Year Company.
This project is open to all First-Year students. No theater experience is necessary and there will be no auditions. All First-Year students are invited to participate.
Our first organizational meeting will be on Wednesday September 15 at 7 pm in the Bentley Theater. If you are interested in participating, please let us know via this google sign-up form! If you have any questions, please e-mail the director Peter Hackett at
Note that participation in The First-Year Project does not preclude students from auditioning for the fall play reading series!
